Donors to the BC Thanksgiving Food Drive have contributed 11,512 pounds of non-perishable food for the Langley Food Bank.
The food drive was Sept. 20 and across B.C. collected 409,624 pounds of food for 49 local food banks. Thatâ€™s about $700,000 worth of food.
The numbers are equally impressive for Langley. More than 280 volunteers spent 830 hours and visited some 10,612 homes to collect the donations.
The BCTFD is sponsored, province-wide, by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Food Banks British Columbia, and is supported by more than 50 local and regional community partners.
Since the projectâ€™s inception in 2009 the BCTFD has collected roughly 1.4 million pounds of food, with an estimated value of $2,400,000.
